opportunity for beginners to pick up a new hobby or avid golfers to continue their love of the game.

​About the Course: You could be  standing on one of the most prized PA golf courses in the Northeast - The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. Completed in 1911, our 27-hole Pocono Mountains golf course is A.W. Tillinghast's first-ever design. Tillinghast later went on to design the Beth Page courses in NY, San Francisco Golf Club, Paramount Country Club in NYC, Niagara Falls Country Club, Ridgewood Country Club in NJ, as well as over 200 other golf courses across the country.  Rich in golf history, Our course is located on a private island in the Delaware River. It is as beautiful as it is fun. The course features a flower garden, vegetable garden, bald eagles nest, and a halfway house that features our homemade beer. 

Arnold Palmer met his wife while he was living on the island and Jackie Gleason learned how to golf here. This course is rich in history and boasts a long line of golfing greats who have played our championship course, including Walter Hagen, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Lawson Little, Long Jim Barnes and Johnny Farrell. A free golf cart tour is available where you learn about the history and see the sites via a golf cart. 

Our residents receive free mid-week golf.
